"Dear Kubek/Shirley family, your mom has always been like a mom to me since I was a little girl. I will always remember her smiling face and her angry one, especially when she was yelling at Cindy😄 So glad I got to see her this year and we had a nice conversation talking about old times. I loved her very much. Happy she is at peace with other members of her family and friends ❤ I will never forget her kindness and love to me. May you all find comfort that she went peacefully and is at rest now with God. Love you all ❤"
